Currently our Creative Cooks sessions are held at the Adult Education Centre in Tonbridge. It is about a minutes walk from the train station making it very accessible.
Each club session is two and a half hours long, during that time our Creative Cooks make at least one recipe from scratch to bring home and share.
Creative Cooks get to be responsible for the recipe from start to finish, starting with preparing the ingredients right through to washing the pans at the end!
It means that they are not only learning to make a recipe and learning about the ingredients but they are also learning how to be in a kitchen. They will learn basic food hygiene when preparing the ingredients, they will learn how to safely use equipment such as sharp knives and cookers and they’ll learn the importance of a tidy workspace, tidying up as they go. The kitchen is laid out so that all of our cooks are around the same bench which creates a really friendly atmosphere, they chat away as they go along but they also have their own set of equipment and own cooker which gives them a sense of independence.
Our Creative Cooks clubs are suitable for all levels, watch each month as they grow with confidence and see how keen they become to cook at home. They are always so proud to bring food home for the family to try and are equally as proud when they come back the next month and tell us what else they have been cooking.
